Asmodeus, Supreme Master of the Nine Hells
Type: Greater God
Dominion: Nine Hells
Domain: Civilization, Tyranny
Asmodeus is the evil god of tyranny and domination.He rules the Nine Hells with an iron fist and a silver tongue. Aside from devils, evil creatures such as rakshasas pay him homage, and evil tieflings and warlocks are drawn to his dark cults. His rules are strict and his punishments harsh:
Seek power over others, that you might rule with strength as the Lord of Hell does.
Repay evil with evil. If others are kind to you, exploit their weakness for your own gain.
Show neither pity nor mercy to those who are caught underfoot as you climb your way to power. The weak do not deserve compassion.
